Description

When configuring an interface we can specify a "description" of the interface.
Unfortunately this description is not saved into the os interface level.
Example:

ifconfig re0
re0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
options=9b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING,VLAN_HWCSUM>
ether 00:00:de:ad:be:ef
inet 172.20.1.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 172.20.1.255
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
status: active
  1. ifconfig re0 description BACKBONE
  2. ifconfig re0
    re0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
    description: BACKBONE
    options=9b<RXCSUM,TXCSUM,VLAN_MTU,VLAN_HWTAGGING,VLAN_HWCSUM>
    ether 00:00:de:ad:be:ef
    inet 172.20.1.10 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 172.20.1.255
    media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
    status: active

It would be perfect when the description is also saved into the interface in os level.
So you can use this with SNMP Tools to see the interface descriptions.
